Recorded one year before their final album came out, but not officially released until eight years after they disbanded, this live set feels like a belated victory-lap celebration for a legendary band that came to a quiet, unceremonious end. The setting of this particular concert perfectly crystallizes just how far Sonic Youth had come since their origins in the antagonistic early-’80s East Village No Wave scene, with the band performing before a reverential crowd of thousands at a New York City landmark on the Fourth of July. Making the Nature Scene (Battery Park, NYC: July 4th 2008).

Sonic Youth’s last studio album, The Eternal, was released back in 2009. That live record, now titled Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008, is coming out as a standalone album on June 7 via Matador.

Sonic Youth only had one album left in them when they played Battery Park in July 2008. No one knew that yet, and their breakup was still a few years away. The show unintentionally serves as a broad overview of their remarkable career, but it also points to how exciting they were when they ended, even if it has only a loose connection with their final record, 2009’s The Eternal. Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008, made up of performances taken from that concert, was originally released as a bonus along with that album, and only now gets its official standalone release.

Sonic Youth will release 'Battery Park, NYC: July 4, 2008' this summer. The album was recorded during the band's career-spanning set at Battery Park’s River To River Festival in 2008.
